Strange as it may be, the New Orleans Saints will probably benefit by Donovan McNabb's benching by the Washington Redskins. Mike Triplett, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

Oddly enough, the New Orleans Saints should benefit from the Washington Redskins' benching of quarterback Donovan McNabb.

It essentially guarantees that the Redskins will send their third-round pick to the Saints in next year's draft as part of the trade they made for offensive tackle Jammal Brown this offseason.
